Default lcd monitors

well i'm thinking of getting my first lcd monitor and wonder if anyone has any tips. i play lots of games and watch movies on my comp so screen quality
is kinda worrying me. do they compare with crts?

was thinking of this one. looks good and in my price range.
Reviews for ViewSonic VX922 19" XTREME 2 ms Response Time SXGA 1280 x 1024 Silver-Black DVI-VGA Ghost-Free LCD Monitor at TigerDirect.com

any thoughts?

LCD's use less power and are pretty much better than CRT's in every aspect except for contrast ratio and color depth/range.

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 206BW Black 20" 2 ms (GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 800:1 (DCR 3000:1) - Retail
This monitor has better specs.

Don't buy from tigerdirect.com....they're overpriced. With newegg.com you get, some of the best prices, and the best service.

yeah i saw that one but i worry about the resolution. currently i have a sapphire
x1050 ati card and run at 1250x1024. i have heard lcd's don't like running at
different rezes than factory set.

OK, then maybe this one will do:
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 906BW Black 19" 2 ms (GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1 DC - Retail
Still better specs than the viewsonic, and much cheaper.

i agree with b1gapl. but IMO, if u want a bigger one, then go with this one
Newegg.com - Acer AL2223Wd Black-Silver 22" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 800:1 Built in Speakers - Retail
or
Newegg.com - SCEPTRE X22WG-1080p Black 22" 2ms(GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1 Built in Speakers - Retail

these might not be as good as what b1gapl suggested, but if u want it bigger than a 20 inch for ur price range, then go with what i have suggested.

I have the Sceptre X22WG, and I'm satisfied with it. But I'd rather go for the Samsungs, as they are higher in quality.
